Dr. Corbin was my auricular acupuncture teacher during my Master's program and I thoroughly enjoyed his class. When I saw this course offered on lhasa oms, I couldn't wait to sign up. Dr. Corbin is a master of his craft. He has years of experience learning, researching, and practicing auricular acupuncture and his passion is evident both in the classroom and in the clinic.
